Bethel's Support of Public Safety


Bethel's Support of Public Safety

Feb 24, 2017

As a church, we love our Redding community and believe it is a truly great place to live. For many years, we have had the privilege of investing man-hours through community service, and finances, into our economy and city. Because we believe that for a city to thrive, it’s important for its citizens to live in peace and safety, our leadership team determined that our next step was to invest in the people who can facilitate and protect this priority of public safety.

We recently met with the City Manager about how Bethel can be part of the solution to the current challenges. We offered a $250,000 donation for the next two years specifically to fund peace officers. We want to be a blessing to our city, and will work with city leadership to refine this offer and how it best serves increasing public safety. It is our desire to connect with other organizations throughout the city to invite them to be a part as well.

We acknowledge our contribution alone will not solve this issue. We see our efforts as a part of a greater, city-wide call to action to inspire healthy, thriving communities throughout our city and cities around the nation. If you have a business, church, or organization that you’re involved in, we encourage you to participate in your own way. We feel it is important, in this instance, to help fund the ongoing employment of our peace officers, who have a mission to promote a safe and secure community.

Join us in anticipating that this will be the best year for Redding yet.
